Welcome to Les Trois Baies
On the eastern side of the peninsula, which juts into the bay east of Diego, is a series of beautiful bays with stupendous beaches. There are many coves and inlets along this stretch of the coast, but the area is named after three majestic bays: Baie de Sakalava (Sakalava Bay), Baie des Pigeons (Pigeon Bay) and Baie des Dunes (Dune Bay). It’s a wild, harsh and starkly beautiful environment, with not a village in sight; expect strong winds from April to November and baking heat from December to March. You will need a 4WD for the sandy tracks. The walk from Baie de Sakalava (the southernmost of the three bays) to Ramena has become a popular excursion, with many tour operators in Diego offering it as a package.
